Collect All 92! / Re: Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)

I want one with a spring action right hand that launches out of his arm. That Saga one didn't cut it.

That was the last version I got.

Kenner 1980 version was decent toy...though the head sculpt was uninspired even for the era. At least his lightsaber wasn't stuck up his arm. Instead it was a yellow stick that you lost in 15 seconds.  :P

The change up to this year, adding bounty hunters, shows they might mix things up more. Considering how dull the assortments were on the previous red Legacy Cards (which didn't even have the old battle droid 2 pack), things are looking slightly more interesting.

I recall reading that they were put the Legacy EU Spacetrooper in Legends next year. Pretty obscure choice for something aimed at kiddies. Not that they wouldn't want it, but it's hardly a proven hit with them since it barely appeared in stores (i never saw one) and collectors and scalpers scooped them up.

A recent Q&A response says the Bossk won't be single carded for at least a year. 

Does anyone know, which sculpt the R2 that comes with this set uses?

IIRCC, someone said that Hasbro said it will be a Build A Droid version.

Y-Wings and V-19's and Gunships?

No, I meant that I  don't own anything for him to fly...that's he's supposed to be flying.

I got Yoda and Oddball via ebay auctions for less than $2 each. No packages, all accessories, including cards. That's Yoda is pretty darn good. Oddball still has the sitting issue, and for a pilot figure...that's irritating. Nothing for him to fly anyway.

Of course it's Rex. It's at least three times easier to get Rex than it is his troops.

Anakin Skywalker still has a useless right hand.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Realistic/Movie Style Clone Wars figures
« on: September 8, 2010, 08:28 AM »
I thought the new "collector focused" line mostly ended the backgrounders anyway.  :P (Or it just seems that way because there's no "new" backgrounders, just redos at the moment.)

Yeah, when they started making ROTS concept Anakin and Ki Adi-Mundi (a good figure, but an odd choice), you know they were running short of Prequel Hero types. Those figures (and the more praised McQuarries/Johnston) arguably took away new tooling that could've been applied to actual movie characters. In that regard, the realistic Clone Wars figures are going to as well. Which is all reasonable, because a lot of the backgrounders we want have been slow movers compared to those concept figures and Hasbro has to balance things out.

But I hope they wouldn't "replace" concept figures, because I wouldn't mind a concept Gammorean Guard, maybe a few others.

The doors on the Bunker do open.  It makes a great display piece.

I wasn't clear...I meant the doors would've been lever activated or spring activated or something, there was a knob on the top of the bunker in the proto shot I saw in some old toy collecting magazine.

I picked up a Chasm escape playset recently, incomplete. Forgot how bad these were.

I recall from prototype phots that the bunker set was originally to have opening door feature, makes more sense than a spring loaded tree branch.

The Endor sets was best simply because Kenner never made the bunker front.

 The Dagobah set never got made.

There was an Echo base backdrop dio planned to include a Hoth Leia, also got canned. Not sure pictures even exist.

Got the Snowspeeder for $20 and a another battle droid 2-pack at a Target where they were still $6.99, as opposed to $7.99 at other outlets.

Those battle droids continue to amaze me in their ability to fall over. Even with both feet on the new battle game stand footpegs, they still collpase.  :P

Hardly ever buy new vehicles (last new one I got was that Homie's Spider Droid), but I got this snowspeeder today. Really neat vehicle. I wouldn't want it any smaller, but then I think they make current Leia figures too small. Carrie Fisher's real height be damned!  ;)

Got Moff Trachta off ebay.

5 Scout Troopers finally arrived from Malaysia...after HOMELAND SECURITY inspected the package. The neon green appproval sticker. Stuff I've gotten from Hong Kong didn't have that.

They came belts unattacted...but they seem to stay on once put on.

I often forget there's a another version they released, the Princess Leia collection two-pack one with the cloth jacket.

Why did Kenner give Han a Bespin blaster instead of his own model?

Also, looking back, Kenner was cheap on the paint ops. No paint on belt or boots.

We froze him back in the day...put him a plastic cup of the freezer.

I never got the POTJ version. I have the POTF2 version with the nearly black jacket (another color debate!), "poured into his pants" look and the same head as the POTF2 ANH Han (freaking lazy a way, the POTF2 designs were also like comic book/cartoon in the sense of character renderings.)
